AT&T Delivers 5G to Intel's Austin Office

AT&T has initiated its first customer trial of 5G service.  The carrier is now delivering a 5G connection to Intel's office in Austin, Texas, using using millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum and equipment from Ericsson.

AT&T said the connection delivers more than 1 Gbps of bandwidth for testing multiple, enterprise proof-of-concept use cases, including Internet access, VPN, Unified Communications applications and 4K video streams.

“This trial is a significant step forward. We’re leaving the lab and heading into the field with a real-world business customer,” said Rick Hubbard, senior vice president – Networking Product Management, AT&T. “We expect mmWave technology to be an important part of 5G. The trial will help accelerate our 5G work by shedding new light on how the technology acts in a business environment.”
